Railey to blind will be the first blind trick you want to learn when you feel confident enough to try and pass that bar! In my opinion it is also the hardest of the blind tricks to learn, perhaps just because it’s the first one, and we are not familiar with the blind landings while we learn it.
Once you get the railey to blind, s-bend to blind and back to blind will come before you know it!
To do a railey to blind, it is helpful to have basic freestyle tricks such as unhooked railey, s-bend, and backroll, dialled in. Just to feel comfortable with various unhooked rotations. Anyway, a proper railey is a must !
Let’s get to it !
Get some speed and go for a railey. Normally the bigger you go the more time you will have to turn to blind. I mean, sure you can start a bit smaller, with more of a shifty, don’t load full on, cause you will just fly away, but try to aim for more than a tiniest little pop ! The trick will also be much easier if you keep your kite low ! If your kite is high, it will be very hard to keep the bar in your hands, as the kite will be pulling up, and disturbing your position. So keep it low !
